Swearing-In was only a few days ago and Pre- Service training (PST) has come to an end. There have been many long hours of language and strenuous days of planning large events for the community. However, I can say I feel I am adequately prepared to serve as a Peace Corps volunteer and serve in my permanent site. I will be placed in Laua-an, Antique in the western visayas region on the Panay island. I will be working with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in the Pantawid Pamilyang Philipino Program.
The video I have put together is a compilation of video footage I have taken around the municipality of Bagac with the intention of showing you a little bit of what my life is like as Peace Corps Traniee. This video is from the perspective of just one Children, Youth, and Family volunteer in Bagac.
